Bishop acquires Western Sling & Supply

Bishop Lifting Products has acquired Western Sling & Supply Company.

 

Western Sling & Supply is headquartered in Denver, Colorado and has a branch office in Casper, Wyoming. It provides rigging and lifting equipment in the Rocky Mountain region of the USA. 

Through this acquisition, Bishop Lifting expands its presence in the US Midwest. Bishop Lifting added that it also broadens the company’s access to new end markets that are currently being serviced by Western Sling & Supply.

“Strategically, the acquisition of Western Sling complements and strengthens our existing operations in the Rocky Mountain region,” explained Harold King, Bishop Lifting president. “Western Sling & Supply, and its customers, should benefit from gaining access to the broad range of rental and custom engineered and fabricated lifting products offered by Bishop Lifting.”
